"Would be perfect with retina"4.0 starson by WMacaulay
Pros: 01 Size is perfect
02 Performance is excellent compared to other tabs I've tried
03 Construction is magnificent. Really solid
04 Great for business and creative professionals
Cons: 01 Retina display will come sometime, I'm sure
02 Screen precision with stylus isn't spot-on
Summary: I use the Mini as a sketch and creative device in architecture and construction. I considered Android, but the apps just aren't there yet with the same depth there are with iOS. While I'm not a Mac guy - all my PCs are Windows-based - I already have an iPhone so an Android tablet wasn't tempting. Autodesk has slew of apps for iOS and that helped seal the deal for me.
The size of the Mini is part of what makes it so good: I find the iPad 4 a bit too large, and the Mini just a bit small, but still prefer the size of the Mini.
The Mini does everything well: content creation, e-reader, mail and calendar, browsing - I'm using my PC and my phone much less as a result of the Mini.
